DVORAKA Hero’s Song
R. STRAUSS Ein Heldenleben

Don’t miss this rare occasion to experience the pinnacle of Richard’s Strauss’ orchestral writing. Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s life) chronicles the life and loves of a hero (presumably the composer himself) in a symphonic tour de force that will leave audiences breathless. To complement the remainder of the program, each piece pays tribute to various mythic legends, including Dvorak’s very last orchestral work which, like the Strauss, places the artist as the ultimate hero.

ELGAR — Froissart Overture
RAVEL — Piano Concerto in G Major
SIBELIUS — Symphony No. 2 in D Major

Featuring Anna Polonsky, Piano

Three iconic works from the late romantic era and early 20th Century, each of which defines the style of music of their nation. Edward Elgar pays tribute to Jean Froissart, whose Chronicles described the great era of chivalry, while Jean Sibelius stokes the patriotic conscience of his native Finland. Meanwhile, nobody represents the French style more than Maurice Ravel in his Piano Concerto in G Major, which flirts with influences of American Jazz and the music of George Gershwin.
